Preparations for Jumping Mechelen
It was debut time again for Golddream last weekend. Jorinde Verwimp successfully competed with the 7-year-old stallion Golddream, who made his national debut in the Prix. St. George. She also successfully competed in the Inter I with Arie Sollenburg during the CDN Cheratte. Verwimp was able to perform strong tests with both horses, which earned her twice a place in the top three.
With a few more weeks until Jumping Mechelen, which will take place next month, CDN Cheratte was a great competition to put the finishing touches on the “i”. With the black gelding Arie Sollenburg (by Olivi) Jorinde appeared in the ring during the Inter I. Arie passed the test clear and already showed that he is almost ready for Mechelen. The jury was able to rate the test, which resulted in a score of 71.6% and a second placement.
But Arie was not the only one Verwimp achieved a strong score with. She also finished in the top 3 with the only 7-year-old stallion Golddream. Goldy has only been in training with Jorinde for six weeks, which made this achievement extra special. Although it was his first time for Goldy in the PSG, he already showed that he has a lot of quality for the higher work in the future. Despite some small mistakes in the test, the combination was rewarded with a score of 69.7% and again a second place.
